Police in Northwest China's Qinghai province said on Thursday that they have arrested a Tibetan man who allegedly attempted to persuade another Tibetan to self-immolate last November.

Police in Tongren county said they thwarted a self-immolation attempt last year by 25-year-old monk Drolma Je after being told the man had stored gasoline in a hotel room on Nov 19.

A probe into Drolma Je's case has led to the arrest of Phagpa, a 27-year-old man who allegedly encouraged Drolma Je to commit self-immolation, a police report said.
